That's what Public Policy Polling (PPP) recently found. Though they headed their report "Huckabee up, Christie down", three paragraphs in one finds the truly interesting fact:
"The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating."Gov. Palin (at 70%) has a 75% higher favorability rating than Gov. Chris Christie (at 40%).
Favorable/Unfavorable ratings among Republican primary voters:
"Most of those numbers are similar to what they were a month ago but Christie's seen a substantial drop from +18 at 47/29 a month ago to his new +2 net favorability."Here are PPP's numbers for Republican presidential preference:
Jeb Bush 14%
Chris Christie 13%
Rand Paul 11%
Ted Cruz 8%
Marco Rubio 8%
Paul Ryan 8%
Scott Walker 6%
Bobby Jindal 5%
With such a huge approval rating, why isn't Palin in the list of possible Republican candidates? PPP doesn't say. But, being both popular and an assumed dark horse can have its advantages.
